Security Awards

Here at Aston University we not only want our students to succeed, but also our staff. 

Within the Security Department we appreciate motivating our officers can come from recognizing their great achievements, and have developed an awards program based on certain criteria:   

  • Has been involved in an incident that has required them to not only display a highly professional approach, but has required them to perform outside the requirements of their job role. 
  • Has displayed courage and determination in dealing with an incident.   
  • Has consistently performed their role to a high degree of excellence and professionalism throughout the year, or whose actions and attitude bring credit to the campus security community and which has been evidenced by their contribution to the ‘student experience’. 
  • Other circumstances or reasons that the officer’s line manager believes evidences that he/she has performed their role in an outstanding or exemplary manner. 

This program works towards ensuring we not only have highly trained, highly professional officers, but also highly motivated and appreciated officers who enjoy their work looking after your needs.   

Security Officer of the Year 2016 : Joshua Samra

We also gave a little extra surprise this year to Team Leader Cleve McKen who has gone an amazing 11 years without recording any sickness absence. That's got to be worth a toast!
